"No, No, No" is a song by Yoko Ono from her controversial 1981 album Season of Glass. The song is one of the most dramatic tracks on the album to address her husband John Lennon's murder. The song begins with the sound of four gunshots (Lennon was shot in the back four times) and Ono screaming. The B-side was "Will You Touch Me". The 12" version also contained "I Don't Know Why", "Extension 33" and "She Gets Down on Her Knees".

In January 2008 the song reached #1 on the United States Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. The artist credit was listed as simply "Ono" making the artist-title combination a palindrome ("onononono").

A digital single of new house remixes was released by Ono through Twisted Records and made available exclusively on Beatport from June 1, 2008.[1]
